At the price you're paying for your HS, this will be cheaper and cool better:

I still have (1) lapped TRUE left ($40 shipped). You'll need to order a LGA 1156 retention bracket and a fan.

@SOUL - How is that cheaper? Does it need a fan, too?

@ Slay - You have a what?

ah my bad, thought the HS was 54 not 44. For $40 though, I'd grab what Slay's offering. A TRUE will definitely outperform a Dark Knight.

can you get me a visual of this "TRUE"? Never heard of it.

OK, I found it. Looks darn nice.

There a difference between copper and stainless steel?

Yeah Copper will conduct heat better.

Think all my current ones are aluminum. Had no problems with them, though.

I don't know. I don't REALLY need something that humongous. I have been fine with aluminum throughout my years of computing.

I know, ultimately, the choice is up to me. Same way I didn't REALLY need an i7.

Whatever... I bought my system just a few hours ago. I dropped the H/S brackets and had to get a different SSD, as the one posted was out of stock. I found another one, OCZ Vertex, 64GB, same MIR as the other, and $4 cheaper.

Total would have been $954. Through savings, $830. $60 back in MIR.

I can write a review once It all goes together.
